Constructed in 1943, SS Jeremiah O'Brien is a merchant ship that was part of the fleet of 6,000 boats that assaulted the beaches during the Normandy Landings.
During its time in service, its main function as a "Liberty Ship" was to distribute supplies to US and allied troops during the Second World War.
Nowadays Jeremiah is the only operational survivor of the fleet which in its day was made up of 6,000 boats.
During the ship tour you will see the deck, the machine room, the command bridge and the cabins where the crew lived during the war.
The ship is well preserved and has a long history, but if you have already visited ships like the ones from the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, probably the Jeremiah O'Brien will not seem too interesting.
